Accessing Local Drives in Enterprise

Accessing Local Drives and Folders

*Note* This can be used to map shortcuts to your 'Desktop' and 'Documents' folders so they are easily accessible within Enterprise.

  • When you run the RDPShortcuts.bat file located inside the zip file, you will be prompted by Windows User Access Control to ensure that you want to actually open the file. Click 'Yes.' This file will then run using the 'Windows Command Prompt.' When the command prompt window opens, it will prompt you for your username. 
  • You will not need to include the "Host\" before your username.  Enter your username and hit 'Enter.' It will let you know that it has mapped the user account to the current Windows account. Press any key to continue and the window will close. 
  • Now, the shortcuts to your Desktop and Documents folders will be available when saving or loading documents.

1)    Navigate to an employee record:

 2)    Browse to the documents section using the menu pane located on the left:
